Saturday: Building Motivation and Drive for All Sports (Emphasis on Personal Play). Denise will cover drives and how to build them to a level that they can be used throughout your training for any sport. Participants will gain an understanding of their dog’s behavior, and learn specific techniques for working with their dog. Both toy play and personal play (just the handler with their dog) will be covered extensively. Working time will be in both groups and one-on-one.

Sunday: Problem Solving For Competitive Obedience and Rally. This seminar allows extensive working time with each team. There is no group work. Each dog’s problem or stage of training is discussed, and options for working through the problem are presented. The team then practices with continuous feedback from Denise.


About the instructor: Denise Fenzi is a 25 year veteran of training, competing, and titling in schutzhund, obedience, tracking, agility, conformation, and herding who has earned multiple HITs in obedience and schutzhund. Denise’s positive training methods are widely recognized for producing dogs with exceptional attention, accuracy and enthusiasm for their work. She uses her extensive knowledge of canine drives to motivate the dog and turn training into a positive experience for an enthusiastic and accurate performance. She has extensive experience working with all kinds of dogs.

Denise does more than teach you to train your dog in specific exercises. She teaches you to understand the work from your dog’s point of view, so you become a problem solver for your dog. Denise has an affinity for working with puppies and dogs needing retraining on poorly-taught exercises.
